the story was sound but i think it needed someone better to illustrate it. i know the artist is known for doing hell boy, but to have something of this nature you need someone that can show the depth of this kind of read. jim lee or ethan van schiver or ed mcginness or the ones that did the jsa series. i feel they need the right illustrator for certain projects.

Format: Kindle Edition
In the mid-1990's, through a series of questionable storylines (i.e. "Emerald Twlight," and "Zero Hour - Crisis in Time"), DC Comics had disgraced its iconic Silver Age Green Lantern, Hal Jordan, by transforming him into its Darth Vader-like villain known as Parallax. When last seen, Hal had heroically sacrificed himself re-igniting the sun to save the DC Universe in "The Final Night." In 1999, DC Comics had writer Geoff Johns bring Hal back from purgatory for more in "Day of Judgment," as the Justice League teams with the Sentinels of Magic (Zatanna, Dr. Fate, the Phantom Stranger, the Golden Age Green Lantern, etc.) to thwart mystical underworld villain Nekron.

Disposing of the Spectre's previous host, Jim Corrigan, "Day of Judgment" sets up Hal's slow road to redemption, as he becomes the new Spectre (with a Green Lantern-like appearance). DC wisely recognized turning Hal back into Green Lantern full-time (after his numerous misdeeds) shouldn't happen too quickly, so that is how/why "Day of Judgment" is set up. At best, it is a nice yet otherwise forgettable bridge towards Johns' far superior "Green Lantern - Rebirth" in 2005. With an included back-up feature, this trade paperback is also a solid piece showcasing Zatanna, Alan Scott (the Golden Age Green Lantern), and the other Sentinels of Magic (a far-less-grim forerunner to today's Justice League Dark).

The major detriment really is the amateurish artwork, ranging from okay to mediocre to atrocious - in other words, it is consistent with DC Comics' declining efforts during the late `90's. The sole terrific image is of a cover close-up of a ghostly pale Hal.

Ultimately, if you like Hal Jordan as much as Geoff Johns obviously does, this is a decent adult read.

This is first and foremost a green lantern story - you'll need a bit of esoteric knowledge of the more obscure of the DC super heroes to keep up but mostly if you are unfamiliar with the Parallax / Hal Jordan saga then this story will mean little to nothing to you - most of the A-list heroes - Superman, Batman, Flash, etc. play smaller auxiliary roles - batman and superman combined have maybe 30 lines. Ultimately the story is about the retiring the former Spectre, the ensuing chaos, and Hal Jordans redemption for his actions as Parallax. If you're a fan boy its a good read. If you're more of a pedestrian then maybe skip this.
